Matthew Murray was originally commissioned to shoot Ska portraits and was interviewed about the Ska series and book for the Two Tone Ska Under the Influence documentary. The section uploaded is a never before seen piece from this documentary which is not included in the final aired documentary. This is the second episode of the series Under the Influence, examining the late-70s ska revival in the UK, a movement built upon the fusion of punk rock and traditional ska. Led by the Specials, it looks at how the cultural climate of the time period in the UK inspired the founding of 2 Tone Records and how that led to the ska movement in the 80s and 90s. Under the Influence looks into some of the most important music scenes of thetime, exploring the people, bands, and styles that changed the course of music forever. Narrated by modern day punk legend Tim Armstrong (Rancid, Operation Ivy, Transplants), Noisey delves deep into the worlds of New York Hardcore, British 2Tone Ska, and German Krautrock to find how these scenes were created, and how they continue to shape art, music, and culture today. Join us as we circle the globe to meet to everyone from x to y, to witness life under the influence.
